"Dr. Kelishadi is amazing!!! He made me feel so comfortable! I had Breast Augmentation May 26th. I'm three months out and loving my results! I was very self conscious about my chest. My breasts shrunk due to breast feeding. I didn't even want to change in front of my husband. (he loved them no matter what lol) and now I am feeling so great about it! He said he's even noticed a boost in my confidence level. I love it! i feel good..i feel sexy. I never thought I would actually go through with getting this done, but Dr. Kelishadi and his staff helped me with every step of the way. He was very caring and checked up on me after surgery. His staff was very nice as well. All so helpful! I highly recommend him!"- J.V. / Yelp / Jul 27, 2017

"Dr. Sean Kelishadi is genuinely, personable, respectful, honest, talented, generous, warm, attentive, hard working, thoughtful and the most caring doctor I know. He personally answers all questions honestly and attentively. I felt he was only interested in me AND my family’s best interest. That to me is so refreshing! I always feel welcomed and treated with kindness no matter what. I love the educational (very professional) stories he shares on social media because I learn so much and I feel in the know of the latest in skin care, he’ll even share his own experience and results! That is my favorite because it speaks how much faith he personally has in what he promotes."- P.B. / Google / Jan 25, 2020

"Highly Recommended, Talent and Comfort Top Notch - This will be long, but if you're considering having Dr. Kelishadi do a very intricate and invasive surgery on your body, I hope you respect your body enough to be looking for long and detailed reviews. I followed SSK Plastic Surgery on Instagram 6 years ago due to a random suggested surgery post that I thought was very impressive. Back then I had a 6 year old child and a very nice figure. I didn't expect to ever need or want anyone to alter my body. 6 years later, after having another child, my entire midsection had suffered. I had a big gap between my abdominals that would never mend itself, and the fat collection there was disgusting. I'm a powerlifter, and I had a great physique everywhere else and this ridiculous abdominal issue. My breasts were also super saggy but I would never have just repaired them alone.Eventually I decided it was time to look into fixing my abdominals. I had lower back soreness from my weight lifting, because my core was missing some muscle strength, and I just wanted it all restored to my pre-baby form. Who did I call? The guy I saw fixing abs for many years. Dr. Kelishadi. He is easy to talk to, he's fun and funny. His office is comfortable. His staff is kind, sweet, and gentle. I went for a consultation and we discussed the impending surgery. He looked very intently at my body and explained very thoroughly what it would take to accomplish what I wanted. To my surprise, he didn't want to do any liposuction. I thought I had enough fat there to warrant it, but he explained why I didn't need it. The main part of my surgery would be the sewing together of my abdominal gap (diastasis recti) and then the removal of the belly pooch. He never offered any extra add-on procedures and explained why they weren't necessary. He isn't trying to nickel and dime you - he treats you as a canvas and he knows what's going to look the best. I asked about a breast lift, since I was already going to be getting major surgery - and he was honest and assessed the situation as well. We decided on just a lift (mastopexy) without any implants or other procedures. I was a 36DDD but mostly because of all the loose extra skin. I just wanted them back where they belonged. I attached before and after photos. But they're only 7 weeks apart! The full swelling of this abdominal procedure takes 3 MONTHS to subside and a year to show its full result. But this is only 7 weeks. My breast lift is PERFECT, and my abdominals are already SO STRONG and so much better. It's worth mentioning that my "created" belly button is also just perfect. Lots of times you can spot a fake belly button by it's weird shape and lack of folds inside, but this thing is PERFECT. The last 7 weeks since my surgery, I've seen Dr. Kelishadi 12 times. I had a small complication (they happen sometimes with a surgery this major!) so I saw him more than you might, and I can't say enough good about how comforting and intelligent he is. He eased every concern and he made everything work out perfectly. Also, when these photos are only 7 weeks into a recovery that takes many months to truly be healed, you can see the talent that exists here. Sidenote: he even gives you his cell phone number after your procedure, and he's available anytime at all for questions, concerns, or even to text and brag about how happy you are. He is truly AMAZING."- F. / RealSelf / Jan 14, 2020
Men and women who have good health and skin tone are great candidates for this cosmetic injectable. You should not have Radiesse injections if you are allergic to lidocaine, or any of the other ingredients in the product. Make sure to tell us about any allergies (severe or not), or if you have a history of any bleeding disorder. If you are a woman and are breast feeding, pregnant, may be pregnant, or are considering pregnancy within 1 – 2 years, you should not use Radiesse. The best candidates for this procedure have deep lines that reside within the smile lines, marionette lines, the corners of the mouth, the sides of the chin, and/or chin wrinkles.
Radiesse injections take place within our office. The process is very simple. We will prep your face, mark your injection spots, administer the product, and have you on your way. First, you will be seated comfortably in our treatment room and the areas of injection will be cleansed and marked. A numbing agent will be applied and left to sit for a few minutes so that the injections are not uncomfortable. The dosage of Radiesse, selected at your personalized treatment planning session, will be prepared in an ultra-fine syringe. We will mark your face with a washable marker for precision before injecting the medication. After the injections are complete, we will apply a cold compress to help alleviate swelling or bruising.
What to Expect
You may see some slight swelling, redness, and possible bruising after your injections. This is common and should only last for about 5 – 10 days. In most cases, if bruising does linger longer, it can be concealed with makeup. If the side effects last longer, or seem excessive, please do not hesitate to call our office, especially if it lasts longer than 10 days. The great thing about this injectable, is that within a few minutes, you will see results in your facial appearance that appear younger, softer, and provide a natural glow. Radiesse tends to last longer than some of the other fillers on the market.
This exceptional product may last 1 – 2 years, however, some patients do schedule their appointments earlier to refresh their results. Why wait to look continuously younger and gorgeous?
